The Padres have the least amount of historical nostalgia on this map with concerns to MLB history.
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim is the name of a team already.
So what about the Los Angeles Dodgers of Las Vegas? What about a certain amount of series taking place in a newly built Vegas ballpark?
San Diego Padres of Vegas?
And what about the Arizona Diamondbacks of Las Vegas. That would be my vote if a share of a relocated/co-located Athletics didn't come to be. One shared for Las Vegas and/or a Oakland/Portland partnership. Envision, the West Coast Athletics. Below-linked I talk about it. I also talk of a team that would be housed in the Inland Empire (Riverside/San Bernadino California area as well as Las Vegas). Las Vegas could afford the venue for sure.
